Hicks mentions they've been asleep for 3 weeks in Aliens.

Other script drafts of Alien 3 gave varying dates of July 3rd (no year), July 23rd (also no year), and 2270.

Mind you some also said Fiorina was in the Hyperion Galaxy and the Neroid Galaxy.

Navigational failure leads to a four year drift. I just don't see the problem.

Except that the script itself indicates otherwise:

Quote
Rosetti: "According to this, you departed Gateway three days prior to the navigational failure that sent Sulaco into the UPP sector."

Fox: "Let's consider that a glitch in your documentation."

Rosetti: "But your orders say you're here to investigate the accidental failure in the ship's navigational system.  If it was accidental, how did you manage to leave Gateway before it happened?"

Welles: "Not to worry."

Rosetti: "I'll decide that for myself."

Welles: "If I were you, I'd worry about the mission priority-rating on those orders.  That's the two-digit figure in the upper right corner, page one."

Rosetti: "I think this 'software failure' was a command from Gateway."

Fox: "Rosetti, that isn't in the documentation."

Rosetti: "You caused the failure, deliberately routed Sulaco through the UPP sector, and brought her into Anchorpoint."

I wonder if the "20th Century Fox Uncovered" bit on the cover is a sign they're at least open to the possibility of more of these kind of adaptations, Alien-related or otherwise.

The question is: how long does Dark Horse get to keep the Alien license?  Why would Disney allow them to compete with Marvel if they own all of Fox's IPs?

I would assume existing licensing deals would still apply following the buy-out. So depends on how long Dark Horse have Alien/Predator for. It'd make sense for them to take it in-house but then Marvel also out-sources to other publishers - http://comicbook.com/marvel/2018/07/17/idw-to-create-all-ages-comics-featuring-marvel-characters/

At the end of the day, we're just not going to know until we know. So many variables.

What if it's so popular and successful that it turns into a monthly series entitled Corporal Hicks?

They should do the Wooden Planet script next if it's successful. Not sure about the other ones.

Only if it's actually my likeness.

Personally, I want them to do them all 4.

I did wonder that myself a few pages back.

It’s an interesting header.

Honestly the Twohy script never did anything for me, and the Red script just... Ugh.

Calling it "20th Century Fox Uncovered" means we could get more than just Alien script comics. Hmmmm, they could do a comic of Ellison's I, Robot... especially since he can't sue them anymore.
